In the first half of the 19th century, Bristol was one of the most unhealthy cities in the country. David Davies was the first Medical Officer of Health (1865-1886), and here a medical and an urban historian combine to show how he worked, on the whole successfully, to reduce the mortality from infectious disease, while eschewing a more radical, preventive, approach to housing and sanitation.
